comment Rigorous book on bootstrapping, boosting, bagging, etc.
@user782220 For the boosting list, I'd start with the 'overview' papers he lists. Schapire's papers seem to be on the more rigorous end of the spectrum. For bagging, Breiman's papers are the place to start. Also, the bagging list has a few Annals of Statistics papers. These are (obviously) from a statistical point of view, but are quite 'rigorous.' As for Efron's books, I don't know how 'rigorous' you're hoping to get, but you really can't go wrong with the 1994 text (IMO). Another good bootstrap reference is Davison & Hinkley.

comment How to get from $a\sqrt{1 + \frac{b^2}{a^2}}$ to $\sqrt{a^2 + b^2}$
Hint: for positive $a$, $a = \sqrt{a^2}$.

comment Time Series and statistics
@DilipSarwate Ah sorry, yes I think you're correct. It was previously written as (Xt - j) and I didn't even think about whether it should be X(t)-j or X(t-j). The latter makes much more sense.

comment Generalization of variance to random vectors
Note: the covariance matrix contains covariances, not correlations (i.e. the elements are not constrained to $[-1,1]$). Further note: the diagonals of the covariance matrix are variances.

comment Finding a formula to sum natural numbers up to $n$
I love this trick -- usually blows the mind of at least one student when shown to them. Can you do something similar for the sum of squares, cubes, etc?

comment Working out the variance of the Poisson distribution
Take a look at factorial moments and factorial moment generating functions (That's what he's using).
